The eco-friendly clear Polylactic (PLA) plastic cups are derived from 100% renewable resources and odor-free, maintaining product integrity. Comparable to petroleum-based plastic, PLA is a nonvolatile and odorless polymer used in a variety of industries and generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Unlike most PLA products in the market, Karat Earth PLA cups and lids are made in standard cup and lid sizes for convenient switch and storage. Available from 3-24 oz. starting as low as $85 per case, the eco-friendly plastic cups are fully compostable. Also derived from renewable resources, Karat Earth's eco-friendly paper hot cups are heat resistant against temperatures of up to 190 degrees F, certified compostable in the U.S. and Japan, Cedar Grove Certified, and available from 8-24 oz. starting as low as $60.50 per case.

Other September promotional items include new red and green Karat heavy-weight teaspoons for as low as $23.50 per bag, Karat jumbo wrapped straws for as low as $49.95 per case, Karat PP plastic flat lids for as low as $68.95 per case, and Karat PS plastic flat lids for as low as $30 per case.
